Traffic, Driving and Crossing the road, London
Even if it´s green look one extra time, there are severar cars and taxis that drive when it´s red for them. It happend to us, the taxi driver took of when it was red light.
They drive on the left side of the road. So if you're from the USA, you should watch from the right when crossing the road!!
So many tourists are injured each year, please don't be a statistic! Remember to look both ways when crossing and to pay attention to the signs. I almost got run over by a cab in London : /
For the benefit of those of us (79% of the World) who drive and walk on the right side of the road, you'll see these signs at many crosswalks.
Heed the warning, please don't get hit by a Mini.
Parking - It is almost impossible to get a park in the city centre, and the fines for parking illegally are very steep.
Metered street parking is FREE after 6:00pm and 2 hours FREE on Saturdays.
Don't try to cross it - traffic is chaotic. London is one of the few places I never feel safe crossing roads. Cars go by so fast and so close to the pavement - watch out for it!
When crossing roads always take care! In the UK is left-hand traffic. Marks on the road like on the photo are really helpful.
Always both ways when crossing the street in the reverse order..IOn other words look to your right first and not your left..It takes a while to get used to and I have had a lot of close calls...
